West Coast Swing and Jive Weekender Overview

Thank you for showing interest in our West Coast Swing and Jive Weekender this coming November. Please read on to find out more about what makes our events so special, and how our events give you a great dance experience and a lovely weekend away.
We offer you two full days of workshops (approximately 30 to choose from), brought to you by the best teachers we can find from home and abroad. So why are they the best? Because we research all of our teachers to ensure their workshops are interesting, enjoyable and challenging yet achievable. We look for teachers to entertain you in our Saturday night cabaret, but just as important is that they enjoy mixing and dancing with all of you.
Our evening dances (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) have 2 halls running, so that we can offer you a choice of music at all times. If you are one of those who likes to get out dancing early, you won't have to wait long for the atmosphere to build. A bit of early entertainment each night (fun class, fancy dress, pyjama performance) will ensure the venues are buzzing from the start. If you like to dance through to the wee small hours, then you'll appreciate our after midnight tea and buns served with a smile by the Rock Bottoms team.
You'll see a lot of the Rock Bottoms team over the weekend (Tor, Jon, Hev & Andy). We greet you at our welcome gathering on Friday afternoon, we man our desk throughout much of the weekend to help you in any way we can, we'll deliver afternoon nibbles on workshop days, and we'll be on the dance floor each night.
The whole event is very sociable - specially the meal times. Restaurant tables cater for all size of groups, and if you've come on your own why not sit at one of our large "Meet and Eat" tables. If you've not been to Rock Bottoms, you might find it a bit weird that 300 people go to breakfast on Sunday in their pyjamas, and many of them take part in the first class - still in their pyjamas. After 15 years of Rock Bottoms, this just all seems normal to us.
All of this action without having to leave the hotel - it's so easy! The hotel staff are lovely too, the hotel facilities are fabulous, and if you do need some fresh air, the beach is a 5 minute walk away.
If you are one of our many happy customers, then you already know the information above. All you really wanted to know is that the theme for our Saturday night fancy dress is "Seventies"
